4:31 am
and the mayor's office in working on getting on the development -- getting the development agreement together. harkening back to the jack tarp, it was the first hotel built in san francisco since the 1920's. a couple of years later, they said it was the box that the jack tar came in. i would like to move to certify the final eir. >> second. >> commissioners, the motion on the floor is to certify the final eir. commissioner antonini: aye. commissioner borden: aye. commissioner miguel: aye. commissioner moore: no. commissioner sugaya: aye. president fong: aye. >> that motion passes 5-1, with commissioner moore voting against. commissioner antonini: commissioner moore, did you want

4:35 am
and all neighborhood organizations who so choose. commissioner antonini: the motion would be a motion to approve with the transportation management plan as part of the c.u.'s for the 3 campuses but available to other campuses. finally, staff having the ability to make technical adjustments but not to change the overall significance of any particular motion. that is a through m. that is a motion for it >> i would second that. commissioner sugaya: unfortunately, i have to vote against the whole thing. i was prepared to vote for certain things like 2a. commissioner antonini: we could

4:50 am
grades five through grade eight. the project include interior and exterior tenant improvements. exterior includes converting our garage into a primary pedestrian entrance, adding a roof deck to the southwest corner, adding associated screening, and adding an elevator penthouse along the eastern edge of the building. interior tenant improvements include new partitions and other support functions for the school. in 2003, the condition granted authorization to install three portable question -- portable classrooms on the existing site. at the recommendation of the board, the portable classrooms were authorized for our use not to exceed 10 years.
4:51 am
this would provide more space for the school, allowing them to transition students out of the classroom and remove the buildings altogether from the site, in compliance with the 2003 conditions of approval. the department has received 50 letters and e-mails in support of the project, primarily from parents. now the department has also received 21 letters in opposition to the project from neighbors. their concerns are about how activity could impact noise and privacy to adjacent property that shares the same space and the potential impact it could have on parking and traffic in the neighborhood, including 19 straigheet and parking that woue eliminated as a result. they would like to see the
4:52 am
rooftop removed and the white stone moved to delores street frontage. it was submitted yesterday but seemed untimely. the department is recommending support of the project for the following reasons. the project promotes the reuse of it difficult to building type. the project is for the continued operation of a neighborhood school. it would preserve the exterior and interior character. it would result in a dwelling unit that is not affordable for the residents. the project is compatible with the surrounding neighborhood, and it will allow for additional choices and educational opportunities for neighborhood and city of residence. this concludes my presentation.
4:53 am
>> project sponsor. >> thank you. i am the head of children's day school, and i want to thank the commissioners for what has been a very long day for you, and also the city staff and the other planners who have gotten to this point in the project. children's day school has been looking for more space for a number of years, and the school did not want to put additional buildings. we are thrilled to be proposed this lovely church and return it to institutional use. independent schools make a wonderful custodians of these buildings and provide the highest and best use of space. the building is a very tight fit for our middle school program, but it meets our needs, and our students think the brick facade
4:54 am
and chandeliers looks just like hogwarts. and it is wonderful to hear them speak about the building and see how it plays into their imagination. i think it is important that there is a strong neighborhood partnership and community-based learning program. students work side by side with people from other nonprofits to better our communities. 40% of our students are on sliding commission. many of our students walk to school, and as the city tries to maintain families in san francisco, children's day school offers and nurturing environment, complete with a farm and garden. this will allow us to double the size of our middle school
4:55 am
program and provide education to more of the families moving into the neighborhood. mark jensen will speak on behalf of our project. we are lucky to have them on our team. and he is an award winning architect. mark design the fabulous roof garden space at the san francisco museum of modern art. goothe agricultural program is o important. markey and his team have been able to provide learning spaces for our middle school students while maintaining elements the city thought it was important to save. we have three middle school students who would like to say a few words about the project, so
4:56 am
we will start with angelie. >> i am a current seventh grader, and i have the privilege of attending for the last eight years. it is such a unique and inspiring school and deserving of a learning environment that is equally stimulating. the move will allow twice the number of students to have the experience i have been lucky to have and to learn in a building that is so beautiful and so inspirational. the move will put the future learning experience of the next generation of students in very good hands and will leave our remarkable legacy for the community and the city. thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> i am occurrence 6 greater. i am the lucky beneficiary of a full tuition scholarship because of the partnership between the
4:57 am
children's day school and the boys and girls club of san francisco. cds gives a scholarship to of boys or girls club member, and i cannot tell how thankful i am for this opportunity they have given me. they have shined a light on new possibilities for me and for other students like myself. thank you for your time. >> your name and? >> maya? >> my name is sam fisher. this is my ninth year at cds. i highly support is being turned into a school. 90% of eighth graders graduating from our school have gone to their first choice high school, and the high schoolers tell us they really like our students. right now our middle school is only made of 88 students.
4:58 am
cds will be graduating double the amount of students who will be academically per turn -- prepared to change people's lives for the better. we can change twice as many people's lives. i would like to invite mark jensen up to the podium. >> that is a tough act to follow. my name is mark jensen, the architect. good evening, commissioners. we are here to discuss the conversion of a beautiful church from a private house to a school. it seems self-evident this is a higher and better use for this beautiful building. the question is how we accomplices in the most thoughtful and sensitive way possible.
4:59 am
to start with, the exterior facades along dolores and 19th, the sanctuary space, the tower, and the entry. our challenges is withing the classroom into this structure. that meant putting these rooms inside the outside walls but outside the primary sanctuary space. in addition, our goal also included a seismic upgrade of the building to make the building fully accessible, to provide life-saving and code upgrades, and to provide a sustainable design approach. to address each of these, the upgrade involves bracing the existing grid wall. they are deep in their analysis for this project, and
